jenny I found it surprisingly moving; I have a serious bias for Kitagawa Keiko so this review may not be completely objective. However, I can definitely say that the story is a beautiful one and well executed. For me, the heart of the story was about family and the bonds within and when she finally reconciles with her mother, it finally brought tears to my eyes.

 If you are a fan of Kitagawa Keiko, then definitely watch this; it's one of her most moving performances.
 If you are not a fan of Kitagawa Keiko, watch it anyway for its heartwarming story and hopeful messsages.

Riisa I wanna see this drama really bad. I want to see how Keiko portrays as a deaf girl. XD
